I did it

I sent an e-mail to the director of disabilities services at my college to ask for the chance to raise a puppy while living on campus. So we'll see what he says. I tried to stress how I've been raising (granted, it's not official, but Vortex and Janda have both done the "college" thing with me) while going to college for the past 2 years so I know it's possible...the problem will be dorm life. Aaaaaaaaa!!! I'm trying not to get too nervous, but it's kind of a big deal. After our club sent Sutter back to Boring this weekend, I realized how much I really need to raise again. I even offered to bring Janda up for orientation if they need proof that these puppies can handle college life.

I kind of doubt they'll say yes, but I think if my roommate and the residents on my floor are okay with it, I should be allowed to get a transfer! So we'll see....keeping my fingers crossed for the answer. :)

I hope it all works out for you! How long you planning on living on campus? I know there was a raiser living on campus at Western Oregon who raised, so don't be too nervous! It can and has happened!

We have multiple university students raising in my club. (I'm one of them until I graduate in August.) Only one person from the club lives in student housing, but she did find a way to make it work. Good luck!

In my club there are are a couple raisers that live in the dorms. They have to stay in the older, not as nice dorms though.
Good Luck!!

I wish you all the luck in the world! It's going to be a rough ride, but if everyone is in agreeance I think you should have no problem.

One of my best friends raised a puppy for CCI while living in the dorms. Never had a single problem. It would be a great experience for a dog.
